Gaurang Somaiya, Forex & Bullion Analyst, Motilal Oswal Financial Services:

Rupee fell to fresh all-time lows following broad strength in the dollar against its major crosses. Dollar rose despite consumer confidence number released from the US came in below estimates. 

Euro and pound consolidated in a narrow range ahead of major central bank governor’s statement. 

Today focus will be on the final GDP number; better-than-expected number could support the dollar at lower levels. We expect the USDINR to trade sideways but with a positive bias quote in the range of 78.70 and 79.20.

Sugandha Sachdeva, Vice President – Commodity and Currency Research, Religare Broking

The Indian rupee has continued to move on the downhill journey since the beginning of the year, amid a backdrop of heavy foreign fund outflows from the domestic markets, strength in the safe-haven dollar towards two-decade highs, and firming crude oil prices. 

The backdrop of heated inflation, prolonged Covid-19 lockdowns in China, the monetary tightening campaign of the key central banks, and supply chain disruptions caused by the Russia-Ukraine war are clouding the outlook for global economic activity and have led to steep depreciation of the rupee against the dollar by around 6.30% YTD.

Even as the rupee holds a depreciation bias in the near term, we envisage that the rupee would manage to reverse some of the losses in the second half of the year. Strong long-term fundamentals, political stability, and a large pile of forex reserves are likely to provide a cushion to the Indian rupee around the crucial 80 mark. 

While our FX reserves have depleted by around $10bln in June, indicating that the RBI is proactively expending reserves to stem the sharp fall in the domestic currency, we still fare well in terms of import cover and other short-term debt obligations. However, RBI is opting for other measures too such as tightening monetary policy, which may arrest the rupee weakness.
